Dried Lobster Mushrooms get their name for a couple of oddly coincidental reasons. They have the same color as lobster and they have a seafood flavor! The lobster mushroom is an extremely versatile mushroom can be replaced when a recipe calls for any other mushroom. Dried Lobster mushrooms are a great addition to any meal and are perfect for stir fries and soups.
The lobster mushroom isn’t actually a mushroom at all but rather a parasite that attaches to certain species of other mushrooms, turning them into Lobster mushrooms. Mother nature is great!!
Dried Lobster mushrooms are very convenient to have whenever you want to flare up any recipe your cooking.
